Triumph Street Cup (2017-2019) Maintenance Schedule

2017-2019 Triumph Street Cup- Stock Image

This is the maintenance schedule with associated service intervals for the Triumph Street Cup motorcycles, made from 2017 to 2019.

The Triumph Street Cup is based on the Street Twin platform with a 900cc liquid-cooled SOHC parallel twin engine with a 270 degree firing order, though tuned slightly differently — with more mid-range. Triumph says that between 2750 and 4750 rpm it makes 18% more torque and 22% more peak power. It puts this down through a five-speed transmission and a chain.

The Street Cup is like a sportier Bonneville with (dare I type the words) “café racer” aesthetics. It has longer forks with a steeper steering-head angle, different handlebars, and a cowl that makes it go a lot faster.

The Triumph Street Cup is very similar to those for other motorcycles with similar engines in the Triumph Modern Classics.

What you need to service the Triumph Street Cup

Servicing the Triumph Street Cup is just like servicing another modern British 900cc twin.

PartTriumph 900cc Bonneville T100/Street Twin/Cup engine spec
OilTriumph recommends 10W/40 or 10W/50 semi or fully synthetic motorcycle engine oil that meets specification API SH (or higher) and JASO MA, such as Castrol Power 1 Racing 4T 10W-40 (fully synthetic) engine oil, sold as Castrol Power RS Racing 4T 10W-40 (fully synthetic) in some countries. A high-quality alternative is Motul 7100 10W-40.
Oil filterReplace the oil filter every time you change the oil. Use Triumph part number T1218001, which fits a lot of Triumph motorcycles. You can also use Hiflofiltro HF204RC which has a neat nut on the end.
Brake fluidTriumph motorcycles need DOT 4 brake fluid (the 900cc range has a clutch cable, so you don’t need fluid for the clutch).
CoolantTriumph uses Hybrid Organic Acid Technology coolant with a 50% ethylene glycol mix. Zerex Asian Vehicle Coolant is a HOAT coolant that meets this spec.
Front brake padsStandard brake pads code is T2027535. The equivalent part number for EBC brakes is FA142HH.
Rear brake padsUse original part number T2022955. The equivalent part number for EBC brakes is FA214/2HH.
Spark plugsNGK code LMAR8A-9. Note they’re sold individually. Make sure they’re gapped to 0.9mm (+0.0, -0.1mm) with an appropriate spark plug gap tool.
Air filterThe part number for the air filter is T2201057. You can also use K&N part TB-9016.

General information about the Triumph Street Cup

The Triumph Street Cup is designed to capitalise on both the popularity of the Triumph Street Twin and of “café racer” styling in general.

The Street Cup is built on the Triumph 900cc Street Twin platform, but has styling that makes it more sporty. In this way, it somewhat replaces the 865cc Triumph Thruxton 900 EFI. In fact, in some ways it’s a baby Thruxton R, even sharing some design features like twin clocks, headlight mounts, and foot pegs.

So the Triumph Street Cup’s 900 cc liquid-cooled 270-degree DOHC 8-valve parallel twin makes a modest 41 kW or 55 hp @ 5900 rpm, with a more impressive peak torque figure of 80 Nm or 59 ft-lb @ 3230 rpm — quite low. That’s why they call it the “high torque” motor after all.

The Street Cup’s rider gear is less impressive, with non-adjustable suspension up front and only preload adjustable in the twin shocks at the rear, and a single 310mm disc with a Nissin 2-piston caliper doing most of the braking duty. These specs say that the Street Cup is mostly about show.

Say what you like about design trends — the Triumph Street Cup is really nice to look at in the flesh. It catches the eye as much as the Thruxton does, and probably would appeal to a similar kind of owner.

A few design features the Street Cup gets are

  • A bullet seat, with contrast stitching
  • A rear seat cowl (making it a rider-only bike)
  • Colour-matched fly-screen
  • Bar-end mirrors
  • Thruxton R foot pegs and headlight mounts
  • Fork protectors, replacing the Street Twin’s gaiters
  • Bullet indicators

On top of that, the Street Cup is a platform Triumph thinks people will customise a lot. So they offer a range of over 120 parts you can add to the Street Cup, from aluminium levers, adjustable piggy back Fox shocks, a tail tidy, and LED indicators.

So the Street Cup isn’t a fast bike, but one rather that looks like it might go fast. Which it might, in the hands of the right rider…

Where the Street Cup distinguishes itself from the Street Twin cousin — aside from in looks — is in a being equipped with twin gauges. That’s right, you get a tachometer! Also a gear position indicator.
